Use Of Kingspan Md146 Long Span Steel Deck On The Up

Floor decking specialists Metaldeck has seen a dramatic increase in the popularity of Kingspan MD146, a steel multideck composite floor decking with two new contract awards secured on the back of the deck being specified.

This popular high performance steel decking offers the longest clear span (up to six metres without propping) compared to other similar products on the market. With the elimination of secondary steel work, MD146 can be fitted quicker and easier than other comparable materials, offering cost effective time efficient installation.

MD146 requires less concrete enabling a floor slab to be formed with 31% less concrete than the next best spanning deck material. The reduction of concrete required makes the structure lighter and reduces the drying time.

Metaldeck, the steel decking division of Raised Floor Solutions Ltd will install Kingspan MD146 on two new projects to start this winter.

Metaldeck will design, supply and install a total of 3,500m2 of MD146 in a premium office refurbishment project for Blenheim House Construction.

The central London project is located on the iconic Carnaby Street, which is just off Oxford Circus. Famous for shopping, Carnaby Street is a busy pedestrianised area. The project will demonstrate Metaldeck’s ability to deliver a high quality installation despite a number of complex logistical barriers – vehicle access is limited to 8am to 11 am only each day. Metaldeck are to start work this month and completes in April 2014.

The second decking contract awarded to Metaldeck is from steel structural specialists, GR Contracts based in Wishaw North Lanarkshire.

Metaldeck have been contracted to design, supply and install 2,500m2 of MD146 floor decking throughout the four story residential scheme situated on Kelvin Street, Glasgow.

Decking deliveries commence in November and the decking element of the scheme completes in January.
